Just wait. For some reason after Ten shipped, updates have been taking a very long time.

It took me about an hour before it found updates the first time after reinstalling 7 to my laptop.

That is Microsoft once again inflicting it's weight on Win 7 users. Win 8 won't be far behind. I'm seeing posts where people have had to let Windows Update run 24 to 48 hours before it finally started downloading updates.

The solution appears to be Autopatcher. See this post by VsUK: Windows 7 stuck on checking for updates

I'm at 98 of 273 updates downloaded (987.87MB total) for Win 7 SP1 X64.
